Children, Feminism, and Fire: There's a researcher in Canada who was looking at the injury rates between boys and girls _boys, by toddlerhood, are two to four times more likely to be injured than girls are, and their injuries tend to be more serious, and she was trying to uncover what was behind that. She was actually on maternity leave with her oldest son and spent a lot of time on playgrounds, and what she saw was this really striking difference in how boys and girls are encouraged, or not encouraged, to deal with risk. So she did a series of studies with little boys and girls on a playground, and she had parents teach their kids to slide down a pole like you'd see at a firehouse. And what she found is that boys were much more likely to be encouraged to be independent, while girls were much more likely to be cautioned about safety, about danger. Even though boys and girls had the same skill level _- both boys and girls were equally adept at actually using the equipment - the way parents treated them was very different, to the point where even when boys actually asked for help, parents said no.

Children, Feminism, and Fire: There's a researcher in Canada who was looking at
 the injury rates between boys and girls _boys, by
 toddlerhood, are two to four times more likely to be
 injured than girls are, and their injuries tend to be
 more serious, and she was trying to uncover what
 was behind that. She was actually on maternity
 leave with her oldest son and spent a lot of time on
 playgrounds, and what she saw was this really
 striking difference in how boys and girls are
 encouraged, or not encouraged, to deal with risk. So
 she did a series of studies with little boys and girls
 on a playground, and she had parents teach their
 kids to slide down a pole like you'd see at a
 firehouse. And what she found is that boys were
 much more likely to be encouraged to be
 independent, while girls were much more likely to be
 cautioned about safety, about danger. Even though
 boys and girls had the same skill level _- both boys
 and girls were equally adept at actually using the
 equipment - the way parents treated them was
 very different, to the point where even when boys
 actually asked for help, parents said no. A couple of
 boys tumbled to the ground off this fire-station pole
 because they couldn't do it without assistance, and
 they were left on their own

 So while this kind of parenting may help protect girls
 physicallv, the research suggests that it also
 contributes to this feeling of vulnerability, that the
 world is a dangerous place. Because the message
 that sends to girls - encouraging them to be very
 cautious and alwavs highlighting safety and danger
 is that the world is a dangerous place, and that
 they can't cope on their own. And that feeling of
 vulnerability of course is a core belief of anxiety as
 well
 Another] study had young children who were told to
 make a world out of these sand toys with their
 parents. And what they found is, parents were much
 more likely to praise their sons when they were
 being assertive or independent, when they were
 telling their parents where to put a toy or directing
 the play. But when girls did that, parents were much
 more likely to talk over their children, ignore them, or
 dissuade what they were saying. So the message
 that sends is that you don't have control over your
 experience, oVer your world
